  1. From the album: Shades of colour

    The forum application software simply will not display the original 1680x2160px image I uploaded into the gallery album, but downsizes it to 933x1200px if you try to view it. The only way to see it at full resolution is to download it onto your device first, and then view your local copy. Given that, I will revert to using an external image host for truly informative large images, instead of uploading it into the FPN Image Gallery for safekeeping, if it is not going to present those images the way I intended them.

  2. Today I'm reviewing Pelikan Edelstein Olivine ink - Pelikan Edelstein Ink of the Year 2018 Pelikan Edelstein Olivine is a dark green dye based ink, that leans quite blue. It could be used as a standard daily green ink. I agree with other reviewers when they say it isn't necessarily the Olivine shade we were expecting, and I wish it had been less blue and more yellow, but as it is, it's still a very nice ink to use. I find all of the Edelstein inks I've tried to be very nicely lubricated inks that flow very well across the page. I had no flow problems with Olivine. No difficult starts or skips. I found it flowed very well in the pens I used it with and I saw plenty of shading particularly with broader nibs. It looked more saturated with my Pelikan Go! B nib. Lubrication was good enough, and it felt smooth writing across some of the papers I used. Flow Rate: Very good. A little slow to dry.Lubrication: Good.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: A saturated ink.Shading Potential: Some shading seen.Sheen: None seen.Show-Through:Apica PaperTomoe River 52gsmSilvine lined padOxford lined padField NotesRoyal recycledHobonichi TechoSpread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen.Nib Creep / Crud: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the penStaining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.Staining (hands): Clean-up needs at least 2 washes with bar soap.Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof and has little water resistance.Availability: Available in 50ml glass bottles from many outlets.
